NO!

Dont do it.

I used to work for a dialup ISP and we sent out our setup software on those minis.

We got some screamers calling us over that.

Cant say I blame them.

Apple is working on an adapter for their PCs and the Wii can accept Gamecube minidiscs but the vast majority of slot loaders will happily eat your mini and refuse to give it back , necessitating expensive repairs to get it to work again.

Eject mini cd from macbook


The only to get a mini CD out of your optical drive is to physically remove it from the drive. This means you will have to take the computer apart and then take the optical drive apart to remove the mini CD.

I inserted a mini disc in my mac computer.It doesn't show on the desktop and I can't eject it using the usual eject key.


Wow, I wish I had any good news for you (other than, "the election season's almost over!")
Inserting a mini-disk into any slot-loading Mac optical drive pretty much kills it. Short of opening up the optical drive itself - which usually throws it out of spec if it isn't already ruined - there is no remedy other than to replace the entire optical drive.

How do i upload the disk onto my mac at home. There isnt a tray dvd-rom it is an ejectable disk format. I put the mini dvd in and nothing happens...seconds later it ejects.


You're fortunate the disc ejects. Many slot-loading DVD drives will get these mini discs stuck in them. You either need an external tray type DVD drive (some are $50 or less) or borrow a computer a tray type DVD drive with either the possibility of copying the data to the hard drive and then to a full size DVD (or dual optical drives (only one needs to be a writer) to copy from one to another). Check the specs for mini-disc (8 cm) support.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Sony Vaio Notebook's blu-Ray optical drive stops during DVD play


The laser is definitely weak on that drive, it takes alot of power to play blu-ray discs and if the laser may have been slightly defective to begin with then that can cause the drive to act funky the way it has been.

Whatever blu-ray drive you get doesn't matter as long as the shape of it is the same as the one you have now cause all you would have to do is change out the front door and the screw holder on the back of the drive, then because the shape of the drive is the same, you can move it back into its slot.

Your notebook is new enough to where any drive will work in it.

I want to play mini cds standard slot drive in laptop.


Since Philips has sold their name and US product lines to the junk dealer Funai, it might be available under their name now.
You could also purchase an external drive to expand your possibilities; they are on eBay for ~ $50 US.

Does not recognize/play DVD - shows "NO DISK"


If you are good at repairs.dismantle the Disk drive unit carefully from the main carriage and if the Optical lens reading unit has got a drive P C B ,then desolder the PCB so that you have only the CD mechanism on your table,with a Digital Multimeter check the Ohmic values of both the Spindle motor and Sled motor. the resistance should read between 4.5 ohms and 8ohms any value beyond this means that the drive signal voltage is not enough to move /rotate the disc and optical-pickup in syncronisation.you can get the drive-motors replaced,or replace the CDM assly available off the shelf.
this should solve the problem.hundreds SONY DVD players are running with this remedy.

Dvd wont play in mini hi fi system


First, you should never use commercial cleaners on CDs or cassette heads. They can create more problems than cures.
Unit may have bad disk motor or optical pick-up
